Lyrics

Separate Road Blues

Written By: Hank Quillen

if you have got to go couldn’t you at least tell me goodbye
I can’t let somebody like you can’t let you pass this easy through
my life
’cause I’ll be missing you every moment I breathe

I hope the road you chose I hope it makes your journey worth while
I hope that each and every day I hope it brings you at least
one smile
’cause you deserve all the happiness I just never could seem to bring

there are times I pray to God sometimes I pray so hard
that it hurts
then I turn right around and I’ll curse HIM for the way
He makes things work
’cause you see without you I find it hard to sleep

I don’t know if its just me getting older but nights feel colder
days there just not long like they were back when I was young

One Helluva Woman

Written By: Hank Quillen

driving my desire on two flat tires
out here on highway five
trying to get to you on a tank
full of fuel
that ain’t doing me no good tonight

sitting on the road oh how I know
I’ll be thinking about getting
your love
cause a woman like you has got to be smooth
when you look that tuff

c: I want to be with you tonight
I’ll do anything just to get
you satisfied
all you’ve been doing
I must say you’re one
helluva woman

the money I spend my five and
my tens
I’ll lay down the bet
cause the night is falling and its you I’ve been calling
and I ain’t heard from you yet
you’re aiming at guidance as you mar silence
with a body that’s a piece of work
you’re giving me the blues while you’re giving me the news
cause you look so good it hurts

repeat chorus

I'm Helpless

Written By: Hank Quillen

baby I am helpless whenever you come my way
just to see you smile brightens my whole day
you have got a way oh you’re slowly driving me out of my mind
I got to find a way that I can get you by my side

the road I travel on memories
tend to get lost
and I know that I’ve been chasing
a lot of dreams that will
never get caught
when I look at you nothing in the world matters to me more
every road I take leads to your door

I like to listen to you I love
the way you talk
sometimes I sing along with the melody of your walk
to you oh woman my heart is gone
everything about you turns me on
